Blogging A to Z Challenge - L is for Lapis Lazuli

Welcome back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2016!  This will be interesting and fun trying to interpret healing crystals and gemstones from Amethyst to Zircon with watercolors and create a neat sketchbook.  

L is for Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazui imparts inspiration and wisdom.  It can also help with the thyroid gland and strengthen vocal cords.  If you are a Sagittarius, you have a particularly affinity with this stone.   Combining the blue of the sky and the light of the gods, according to the Assyrians around 5000 BC, Lapis Lazuli is formed by the conversion of lime to marble...the "gold" you see are pyrite inclusions.
